It seems that this will be appearing on TV with the details to be announced - so I'm guessing Front Runner for those lucky enough to receive that channel, and presumably it will also be available via goldenarrows.

Cheers for posting. I would probably miss it otherwise. I am not sure what you mean by the goldenarrows but a website of similar name doesn't work any more.

Last year I was watching it on youtube though. This year it is going to be streamed too. At least there are these streams on youtube now.



Friday








Saturday

As a fan of all darts, good to see more BDO darts shown on TV, even though Front Runner is low end budget and the camera work and sound quality needs improving, good to watch players that I normally only get to see at Lakeside.
The women's game in the BDO is good viewing a with it being competitive amongst the top 10

Don't know any times yet, but this will be on Front Runner again if you can get that channel on Sky or Freeview - I'll post the times if I see them.

As they have now bought time on Front Runner, hopefully they don't decide to geoblock the youtube links above so that us in the UK who can't receive that channel are still able to watch some of the action. Mind you as it's Glastonbury weekend I'll most likely have that playing on the iPlayer anyway lol.

Mike I saw this posted on the RD site, has the live streaming times - https://www.reddragondarts.com/info/red-...streaming/

As you say though, hopefully the youtube links will still work as the frontrunner coverage is ok, but as we saw with the last comp will cut out if there are any over runs!
